Whimsical Woodlands Shoot

What an incredible day! M&G and Scott and Alia from White Wall Photography all traveled in convoy deep into the Adelaide Hills to Mount Crawford forest to set up and style an editorial soon to be on The Lane. We can't talk highly enough of these two amazingly talented photographers! They really are a lot of fun and we had such a great time with them. We couldn't have done this shoot without the generosity and talent of Akimo (stationery), White & Wander (Props), Lotus (Flowers), Lush Lighting, Two Brothers (Catering), Pastille Petite Desserts (macaroons) and Heidelberg Cakes. Go check out some of the photos here at White Wall Photography and be sure to keep checking The Lane in the near future for more photos!

Feels like Home

A lot of people underestimate the power of putting a little thought and TLC into doing up their house for sale. Styling and staging homes is becoming more and more popular in order to get the best possible results when selling your home. And it does work!
Richelle and Ryan from R&R works last week asked Mary&Gabrielle to come along and help stage and style a shoot for an adorable little house they are putting on the market which they have spent the last 14 weeks bringing back to life. Everyone had a blast and with the crazy talented Mark Dohring from Bentinmarcs Photography taking the shots, Richelle and Ryan's incredible determination and hard work all pays off in these gorgeous images.

 Thanks Richelle and Ryan for letting us help!
